McDonald's Anniversary: Couple Surprised With Party For 61st Anniversary At McDonald's

One couple had a very happy meal to celebrate their anniversary.

Robert and Matilda Grant, a Savannah, Ga. couple, celebrated their 61st wedding anniversary on Thursday with a surprise party thrown for them by the staff at a local McDonald's, reports the Savannah Morning News.

“Just looking at them being together for 61 years would inspire anyone, you know?” lobby attendant Kimberly White told the Morning News. “Marriages don’t last that long any more."

The Grants have eaten at the same local McDonald's every day for the past eight years. They come in two or three times per day and have become very familiar with the staff.
